The PTO funds a $500 stipend per classroom, per school year, for materials and supplies. There is no pre-approval necessary. Expenses must be submitted for reimbursement via the PTO Check Request Form and receipts must be provided.
Teachers may apply for a PTO grant to fund expenses that align with the PTO mission, which is “to promote and support the wellbeing and education of Roy Cloud students.” All grants must be pre-approved by PTO leadership.
What the PTO is looking to fund:
- Something necessary to enhance learning in your classroom and make your job easier
- Professional development
- Student enrichment programs and activities
- Items for which you normally collect funds from parents
Examples of items previously funded:
- Grade-level field trips
- Online subscription to A-Z reading for K-2 classrooms
- Living History Days
- Olympic mentor through Classroom Champions program
For the 2022-2023 school year, all field trip funding will be handled through the school’s administration.
Please submit grant applications as soon as possible in the school year to ensure funds are committed and get into the classrooms. All Grant requests will be reviewed immediately.
